UWP Castries North constituency “appalled” at Chastanet’s statements



The Castries North Constituency Branch of the United Workers Party is appalled at recent statements made by the Political Leader of the United Workers Party Allen Chastenet, to the effect that our current constituency representative Hon. Stephenson King must decide soon whether he wants to continue representing the party at the next general elections.

The branch wishes to make it abundantly clear that consistent with the party’s constitution it will be integrally involved in any candidate selection for the constituency and pledges its unflinching support of Hon. Stephenson King as its candidate to contest the next general elections.

Further, the branch is urging the political leader to concentrate his efforts at the reunification of the party instead of engaging in cheap and out of place talk in the media, which only serves to further erode cohesion within the UWP.

The branch is of the firm view that such public utterances by Mr. Chastenet are regrettable and encourages the political leader to observe the well known biblical phrase that “there is a time to be silent and a time to speak.”

  1. Well,Well I thought that our people knew what it was to be in politics, have we not learned anything about the slave trade, Massa?? and the house slave, the foreman and housemaids. go back to history my fellow lucians u all will refuse to learn or get forward, stop taking 2 steps forward and 10 back.
    Stephenson King is behaving as if Sir John gave him a will to the UWP as he was a former youth Leader secretary,Chairman,prime Minister. no body must take his toy from him and he will cry till they give it back to him.
    The Man King stood by and allowed Kenny Anthony to insult his and said nothing,let all returning officers at the last elections be a Labay and he must win make deals with the Devil to sell the elections to him, for he did not trust another super 8 and now he crying. My boy take what you sow.
    Accept your post as Taiwanese Ambassador and leave politics alone u are a spoilt Child.

  9. Everyone seem to know the answer. Would any of you accept the humiliations the Stephenson has suffered at the hands of the so called educated in the party. Education and money does not make a man, his character does. Mr. king has made mistakes, but who hasn't. He is the most down to earth prime minister we have had other than the honourable Sir John George Melvin Compton. No wonder the late PM chose him to lead, he knew his heart.

  11. Politicians have a right not to educated these St. Lucians. Many prefer handouts instead of learning to think on their own. fools

  13. No one is bigger than the party, and that goes for both parties. .l think that king should do the right thing, and attend party meets, it has nothing to do with chastnet.I see a level of arrogrance and pettiness in him.He's doing a disservice to the people he represents and himself. Mind you I'm no chastnet supporter, but I'm a UWP at heart.So come to meeting be who we know you can be, speak your mind and help unite the party.

    • People can vote for who they please. There's another UWP convention before the next general election, who knows King can win, but he NEEDS to be a TEAM PLAYER. So I suppose he is thinking of crossing the floor. If he was a MAN and made the decisions he had to make before November 2011, he would have been the Prime Minister. He did not realize Wycliffe Jean Jumping over his back was a bad thing!
      All of you'll afraid of Chastanet, the man does not have a seat, King does. King need to WORK together with the others.

  35. All those people criticizing Chastanet,why not take up his position so we could see better representation from you all.

    Those King supporters I believe are confused.Is either you part of the UWP or you not.Make up you minds.You cant have a party within another party.Its like an autoimmune disease.You all fighting yourselves.SMH

  37. @concern and any one bashing Mr. King, what non sense y'all talking there? "King sits there doing nothing?" Before y'all come on social media to beat y'all mouth, investigate first, Mr. King works hard to please EVERYONE in his constituency!! I know this for a fact. He is the ONLY politician who had not made himself BIG from politics in terms of eating people money. I have worked with Mr. King and anyone who has worked with him can tell you his ONLY downfall in life as a politician is "giving too much and saying yes to every one needs and wants". Why? Cuz that's who he is. He does not have to buy people off. Before you talk come to the constituty to see the number of people who have benefited from his help. Mr.King WILL NEVER lose Castries North!!

    • Everyone knows king is working in his constituency. Chastanet wants King to bring his experience to the party. King is right not not making any contribution to the oposition. Chastanet wants him to step up and help take UWP to the next level.

  65. We've had several types of characters as PM of this country, I've seen what King could have offered, seen Vaughn, seen Compton , heard about Allan Louisy, and whoever again. Right now I will support any body that have the balls to stand up against Kenny and the nonsense he is doing in this country. How can you run a small country like St Lucia on only taxes. SMH

  67. King needs to stop being SLP's doormat. If King is now associated with the same people who criticized his educational background or lack thereof and insulted him about his leadership skills, made a big deal of when he bent for Wyclef Jean to jump over him, spread that Richard punch him in the face then King is pathetic.

  86. Allen Chastenet is a political disaster. I am convinced that he sees himself as entitled to be prime minister of St Lucia. The UWP will lose again, big time, with him as leader. He does not have a clue about leadership. Perhaps he should focus more on running his family hotel to develop his leadership skills because he ain't read to run St Lucia.

  87. Advertisement
  88. This is one time I agree with Chastanet. Rex cannot just sit on his axx and do nothing when election is not too far off. So at one time he wanted to be leader, this is the time he should get busy and help out some of the weaker members. Labour is out for blood and they don't care who they trample on. It wont matter to them if they won every seat. Typical of king to take things for granted, he got f'ked up at the polls the last time because he lacked the foresight and this time he is banking on just winning his seat; not good enough. It's time someone light a fire up his ass to get him to move. Nice guy, but nice guys end last.

  90. CHASTANET - EN DIS CRIEUX (RUDE). It may not be Steve, but please LUCIANS (Labour and Flambeau), don't let it be Chastanet. Lucia needs a smooth and genuine leader. One who will embrace all Lucians immediately after elections. Not Kenny not Chastanet.

  92. King will be our next prime minister ? How and when? Steve better put his acts together and reunite his self with the party . Eithe he in or he out . Now is the time for him to decide. King needs to understand that if he is not taking part in anything that the party is doing , so why want to go up on a UWP tickey? The fellers are working hard to win the next election , while he seats there doing nothing. When the fellers win the next election he will be smiling and enjoying the win? Nonsense.

  94. If Chastanet think he is going to run for Castries North he lie because I ain't voting for him.
